Feedback Saturday (#34)

So I'm watching The World Cup and NHL Hockey and NBA Basketball and The US Open and The World Series of Poker and The Professional Mime-Off and The Scripps National Spelling Bee and I've had a few Amstel Lights and darned if I can't tell which way is up anymore.

I'm thinkin' that it would be cool to poll the greatest readers on the planet about which sport they like best.

So. . . that's the assignment this week -

What is your favorite sport?

Please go beyond the obvious and give us some details as well.

Thanks and I look forward to reading all about your input.

It all depends if I'm watching or doing. I watch everything, and I kid you not.
Well. Apart from the cycling, because that's just boring. I find it very inspirational to see people giving their life's best. Then of course, I stay sprawled on the couch because it's just more comfortable.
Although when I do do sports, swimming's definitely my favorite, simply because it has to be the greatest feeling in the sportsworld...
By the way. I cheered for you yesterday. Can you return the favor this afternoon? Much appreciated. ;)

Favorite sport to play is racquetball, because it's the only sport I play these days, although my knees are begging me to stop.

To watch, NFL football has me by the gonads. I think a lot of it has to do with the NE Patriots and their recent run of Superbowls. And I just love the game. I don't wear the face paint or funny wigs/helmets, but Game Day is special to me.

I like watching Basketball the best because I understand it.
I like playing the game of Volleyball--namely because there is like NO physical contact between teams. I hate people hurting me during sporting games, ya know? I'm tall so people automatically assume that they can jump on me and stuff.

Anne - I was pulling for your boys (they scored a goal, which is always good), but alas they drew a tie as well.

Strings - Racquetball is pretty fun unless you are playing some super-stud who serves it about an inch off of the ground and you have no chance whatsoever to get it.

Sadie - Basketball is good in person, but on TV I can only watch playoff games.

Fuzz - Yep, American Football is made for TV . . . great action with perfect commercial breaks. Nice stuff.

I don't PLAY sports, because I tend not to run unless I'm being chased, but I love to WATCH baseball.

Well, actually I like to watch softball, and by that I mean I like to watch my KID play softball. Yeah, I'm totally a Little League mom, sans all the overzealous PARENT crap that plagues the usual Little League fields.

Watching: Hockey Playoffs (go Edmonton, sorry, I know most of you are from the US) Or Olympic skate-skiing.

Doing: skate skiing. I'm a huge buff. Love the swoosh of the snow beneath my feet as I pick up speed and feel actual wind in my hair due to my own momentum.

Football, that being American football which is a sport as opposed to that game where skinny guys in shorts run around kicking a round ball. I have been a diehard Broncos fan since I was seven years old.

I think soccer is the greatest sport. There is no such thing as an out of shape soccer player. Not only that, but they are all fast as hell and incredibly athletic.

But, there is no better sport to watch on TV than American football. Football is made for TV. There's only 16 games and all games are played on the weekends, save for Monday night football. Which means you can watch ALL your favorite teams games. Go Broncos!

Football is also the best game to gamble on. Football has become SO popular from a gamling standpoint it's crazy.

First and foremost, Champ Car racing. I live for it and summer when I can go to races (which I'm doing this weekend).

After Champ Car, it's hockey (Yay Carolina, sorry Oilers fan, but I love Rod Brind'Amour, Ray Whitney and a whole host of other 'Canes players).

And come July, my VCR will be doing overtime taping the Tour de France.

I participate in none as I have zero athletic ability.

What Liz said! ;)

I've been watching the World Cup.... or trying to anyways. I love soccer. No commercials and the players that aren't on the field sit their asses down until they are called to play.

I love watching baseball, basketball, and hockey live. On TV they are all too boring for me. (Wierd, I know.)

Favorite sport.... oh, those words don't really go together in my vocabulary.... I suppose, if I had to choose, I'd pick elephant polo. Fast, furious, dangerous, and smells like peanuts.

Not even subject to debate - my favorite is football, especially the NFL. I am addicted to fantasy football and usually run anywhere from 5 to 10 teams in different leagues and formats. Because of the fantasy football, I can watch any game regardless of who is playing - chances are I'll have a player going.

I agree with Mark up above that soccer players are well conditioned. Maybe second to Australian Rules Football players, soccer players are probably best all round athletes. It's a shame that ability couldn't be put to use for a REAL sport.
